Exactly!!! Hopping them up the first thing ppl are going to do! I've lost sleep over this..We ARE going to loose trails! Buy the time the smoke settles it will be to late.
And the new e-biker's won't care, they will just move on to destroy the next sport/lifestyle. Shame on Specialized for jumping on this bandwagon!

The number of people that are reacting positively to this article is disturbing. Where do you draw the line? This will threaten trail access in the US if it catches on and e-bikes are indistinguishable from normal bikes to the lay person. If I knew there would be no backlash I would have no issues with this - my wife could keep up and group rides might not take all day. But we have worked too hard over the last 20 years for access to risk it. And you know there will be a hack to set the bike to roost mode...

NO.

It is, by definition, a different "sport" when there is any sort of alternate power source. So please start a new site called VitalEbike and post these turds there.

This is a potentially damaging trend for trail access.

Earn your turns, find buddies to shuttle with, or pay for a lift ticket. Do NOT ruin my trail access with a motored vehicle.

These things should all be painted "Scarlet Yellow" so we can spot the dopes buying these to go poach non-motorized trails with a motor.

Definitely the cleanest integration I've yet seen. Even room for a water bottle in the front triangle. But with where I'd be limited to riding this thing, it just doesn't make sense. In California, riding it anywhere other than OHV trails is gonna cause issues

Kill it with Fire!


Seriously, how much less is this than a used CRF250?

Um it has a throttle. Its a foot activated throttle. Just like a car. Oh yea, and it has a motor. They look fun but they definitely not allowed on trails that do not allow motorized vehicles.

If you want more info on what Lapierre appear to be using check out http://www.aim-sportline.com/eng/products-bike/evo4/index.htm Seems to be an automotive/motorcycle race telemetry system adapted for bikes. I hope http://picorico.io can bring the price and accessibility of telemetry technology to more people for bike specific applications. We still have a lot more work to do but look for a bunch of updates from us shortly.
